Rays Acquire Francisco

The Rays have acquired outfielder Ben Francisco from the Astros for a player to be named later.

Francsico, 30, was hitting .244 with two home runs and seven RBIs in 144 plate appearances with the Blue Jays and Astros
this season.

He has a .258 career average with 47 home runs and 181 RBIs in 518 Major Leagues with the Phillies, Indians, Astros and Blue Jays.

The Rays will need to make a corresponding move to their 40-man roster to make room for Francisco, who is expected to join the team
Saturday.
